Project Physics Collection

F. James Rutherford is curator of the Project Physics Collection. The materials in the collection were created at Harvard University under the leadership of Rutherford, Gerald Holton, and Fletcher W. Watson.

As Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics and Professor of the History of Science, Gerald Holton shaped the intellectual character of the project and its instructional products. His seminal work for undergraduates, Introduction to Concept and Theories in Physical Science, served as a key reference for the project. For more about him, visit Wikipedia.

Fletcher Watson, a professor of astronomy at Harvard was prevailed upon by the Harvard president to transform the Graduate School of Education into the nation’s leader is science education, which he did as Professor of Education. His knowledge of every aspect of science education shaped the project’s reform strategy.

F. James Rutherford’s contribution to the project derived from nearly ten years of high school science teaching. As a teacher he developed new conceptual approaches to the teaching of physics and chemistry, and created and directed the Carnegie Science-Humanities Project involving six high schools.
